SERCOS Interface

SERCOS (Serial Real-time Communications System) is an internationally-approved communication standard for motion control (IEC 61491). This communication network is designed for high-speed serial communication of standardized closed-loop data, in real-time, over a noise-immune fiber-optic cable. We support SERCOS with interface motion modules which provide SERCOS drive connectivity and control for the ControlLogix® controller.
